What EY can do for you

Acing business intelligence with analytics

Globalization has presented significant opportunities to businesses, yet only a few have been able to build a sustainable next-gen operating model to overcome the ever-increasing complexities, uncertainties and expectations around growth, service, cost, customer and employee experience. To be highly resilient, responsive, and agile in today’s uncertain times, businesses must gain some real-time insight into risks and opportunities for faster and effective decision making. However, they are faced with a multitude of challenges:

  1. Proliferation of data volume, variety, and velocity from multiple source systems that traditional data warehouses are incapable of processing, leading to inconsistencies in business processes
  2. Data resides in siloes across the organization, resulting in inaccurate insights drawn from the data
  3. Decentralized operations within a business unit, country, function or process resulting in limited abilities to operate at an industrialized scale
  4. Inability to realize business value despite disproportionate investments made on third party vendors. Traditional technology vendors and systems integrators see analytics only through the lens of technology.  Pure play analytics consultancies view business problems as math problems, taking a simplistic one-dimensional approach.
